, they want this guy. they want tea party birther guy steve king. steve king polls way ahead of his next closest primary challenger. the more moderate republican congressman tom latham. steve king ahead by 17 points in that republican primary matchup when you look at the polls. of course, when you put steve king up against the likely winner of the democratic primary, and you actually poll the whole state, all likely midterm voters in iowa, steve king, the tea party birther king guy loses to democratic congressman bruce braley. but just counter factual here, let's say the wacky tea party guy, the birther steve king guy didn't run off with the primary, look what happens when you poll statewide among likely voters and ask them to choose between the not steve king guy and the democrat, actually, the republican guy wins. in other words, the whole state of iowa would rather have the more moderate republican guy. but if you do not give them that choice in the general election, if republicans decide that what they're offering is just the birther guy, just the wingnut tea party guy and a democrat

, but it seems they've already got their first target in mind. it's iowa congressman steve king. in the words of a top aide to mr. rove, quote, we're concerned about steve king's todd akin problem. all of the things he said are going to be hung around his neck. karen, aside from the fact that mr. king refers to undocumented immigrants as lazy dogs, suggested hillary clinton's state department has ties to the muslim brother 450dhood, and that he doesn't know where the president was born, might targeting mr. king actually help mr. king in some way? >> it could, although here is what i think it does broadly for the republican party. it does mean whoever the ultimate nominee, republican nominee in that race is, has to figure out a way to bring all those voters back together to get enough vote to then run against a democratic opponent who won't have been so ideally beaten up during a primary. remember, it was this sort of republican on republican violence during the primary that gave us, you know, vul titure capitalism that was used in the general election. >> it was also one of the finest clown s

with gop congressman steve pierce. he has decided to skip the state of the union. what's the reason? this guy. the lesser prairie chicken of new mexico. that's right. congressman pierce is going to the birds. literally. he tweeted that he's staying home in new mexico because "a public hearing on the chicken is the same day as the state of the union. no disrespect to the chicken, even if he is the lesser chicken. congressman, it's time for all of us to come together as a union. as americans. and showing up at the state of the union speech is one way to show it. we're facing some serious economic time. we're facing serious decisions on gun legislation. we're facing serious questions about how we sustain social security, medicaid and medicare. i know your party didn't do well last year, but, congressman, don't be chicken. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton, "hardball" starts right now. >> war on drones, let's play "hardball." >> good evening, just a day before the president's chief counter terrorism advisor, john brennan heads to capital hill for his hearing to take over the c.i. ave

committee. steve king and paul brown are howling in fur yi that big shots like rove are saying who should be the republican nominees and who shouldn't. today it was eric cantor's turn. he wants change. the super hawk of the party gave his manifesto at the city's nonprofit war room, the american enterprise institute. what he came out for, nom tu decree that colleges have to conduct employment surveys to say what jobs there are for history majors, english majors. i guess he wants to cut down on these people taking liberal subjects in college that allow you to think and express yourself. he sounds like he wants the federal government to have become a helicopter mom hovering over all of us. and they say democrats are intervening in people's live. what will republicans do next to try to defrekt from their history of starting unnecessary wars, chasing may norths and others from the polling places. helping me to explain the latest republican face lift are john feehery and dee dee myers. we'll start with this. we know karl rove plans on finding more electable republicans candidates as he finds th
